True. Because it is BS.  Which means- the original post was the real deflection. 

maybe it’s to deflect Pelosi getting busted being the worlds biggest hypocrite on Covid? Maybe it’s deflect what Cuomo said today which makes him look like a real ass since he completely failed in every aspect of Covid? And is fomenting violence? Or maybe it’s many of our large city mayors having protesters in their own yards?

some random post from a person I don’t know where trust claiming Trump said something or other? And you expect anyone to take that seriously?
"Some random post from a person I don't know".

It's not a random post. The Atlantic probably falls on the left side of the spectrum, but if you read the article, you can at least see an attempt at actual investigative journalism. 

If you read the article, this is not something that just arrived today as a deflection from something Cuomo said. If you read the article, you can see that the amount of work that went into it was probably days, if not weeks, to talk to sources and develop the article. 

I feel like we're in an alternate version of The Emporer's New Clothes. Where instead of the crowd eventually realizing that the innocent child is correct for saying the Emporer is naked, they beat him to death. Not because they don't think the Emporer is naked--but because it's too painful to address the fact that they fawned over a naked Emporer and some little child has hurt them deeply by pointing out their error.

I feel the same.  I have never agreed with anything in the Atlantic- and I hear Trump say stupid things often.  But I also see, multiple times Daily- fake news reported about him ( like CNN reporting he had mini- strokes) or complete twisting of his words.

Anything on social media without verification is almost certainly fake.  I can’t conceive that you can’t see that.

Someone tweeting about an article in the Atlantic doesn't mean it's "on social media". It means the original Article--which you can agree or disagree with--is being SPREAD on social media.

I did.  It changed nothing for me.  

I don’t care how much you hate this man, and I don’t care how often he screws up with his Twitter or his big fat mouth. You cannot possibly make a reasonable case that he has been anything but 100 supportive of our military in every way possible.

You don’t have to read it longhorn. As usual it’s based on “multiple sources“ and “for people with first-hand knowledge“

Sound familiar?   Collusion? Cavanaugh? Impeachment?

Anonymous sources and multiple people close to the situation, yeah right.  

Meanwhile we have one of the most influential Democrats in the country fomenting violence openly to the media today. What do you Democrats think about that?  I know I know, it’s either Travis fault or that’s not what he was doing LOL

Yes just like the article the other day that was being spread saying that Trump had had many strokes LOL. That to head “multiple sources close to the situation”

Well you have your opinion and I will have mine.

I have no data just anecdotal information that I receive from military people that I know in the real world.  They’re pretty universal and their support for Trump and distain for Obama who they felt weakened in the military and weakened our perception around the world.

His 8 year apology tour and “ leading from behind” was gross 


Also don’t you guys realize how much fake stuff continues to be said about POTUS? Don’t you realize what a high percentage of the stuff out there is completely BS? Why do you ask a prize when even people like me who don’t care for the man defend him against random, apparently made up stuff with no named sources or authenticity?

Sam... 

Mattis is a loser. Just like Kelly. Just ask Trump. He'll tell you.

I do notice you never want to comment on the bullshit coming out of Cuomos mouth today or the hypocrisy of Pelosi which are both hot news items. You always want to focus on POTUS

Deflection or denial?

I think it would be a hoot if Cuomo would be visited by the authorities to investigate a possible threat
